CECAFA Women’s Championships

‘Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something, always believe in yourself’

It’s been awesome to get back in the National side. This time being human not going to lie was a little nervous. The team did well in the African Women’s Championship, so of course my expectations were very high. Arrived in Uganda very excited to meet my teammates for the first time some of them. Something I’ve been looking forward to.

The mood in camp was so nice, I enjoyed every minute of it. The girls were extremely fast and everyone was so enthusiastic. There was something different about the whole mood especially for me, maybe having missed out on the AFCON earlier I have been hungry abit more and I was very much looking forward to getting back in the side with the team.

 

Unfortunately, CECAFA was postponed due to the lack of funds but I appreciated the opportunity I got . I am very ready to get back in the side and content for that number one spot, I am fighting for a starting position on the team and being one of the older ones I embrace the pressure but also want to inspire the younger ones to believe in the power of teamwork and togetherness as we together fight for the win, I love my country. I have been on full time training with some of my teammate while we wait for the dates to come out and I must accept I have enjoyed every minute of it all. It’s been challenging but what’s life without the challenges.

I continue to work hard, work smart as I gain more experience and stay patient for my moment on the National Team. My moment is yet to come.

Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something, always believe in yourself and know you have the power to make all things possible by the power and faith granted unto you by the Lord.
